Tyre Pressure

Recommended Posts

Could someone please tell me what the tyre pressures should be on a Avondale Dart 5.

The pressure will be between 44psi and 65psi depending upon the exact model and the year of your Dart 5 series caravan.

I think we need a bit more information to answer your question.

Try Tyresafe, there is an online tyre pressure calculator tyresafe. org/tyre-safety/caravan-tyre-safety You input your MPTL and Load Index and it will give you the Cold Pressure Reading

Sorry I wasted everyone's time

Not a waste of time at all Les; the more sources of information we refer to the greater chance of accuracy :)

Might as well be solid at that pressure . . van is under-tyred

Thanks for the replies. There is enough information there for me to work out a suitable pressure.

Well well, my daughter found her handbook, it turns out to be a 1999 Avondale Dart 510/5, the handbook says tyre pressure should be 48 psi.

Thank you all for your interest in this thread.

Not a helpful statement?

 

If the tyres have a load rating compatible with the weight of the caravan - which presumably they do - then the 'van cannot be "under-tyred" . As the tyres will never achieve the maximum speed for which the tyre is rated a safety margin is built in!

 

A heavier duty tyre may require a lower pressure for the weight of the 'van but the walls will be less flexible so will feel equally 'solid'. It's the pressure that carries the load!
